United States, New York, New York - 10/15/2019 (PRDistribution.com)
Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, a lifestyle brand centered around food and wine and home to the largest wine club in the U.S., announces today its wine collaboration with LVE Wines: Legend Vineyard Exclusive from Grammy, Emmy, Golden Globe, Tony, and Oscar-winning singer, songwriter, humanitarian, and philanthropist John Legend. The limited-edition California wine was created for the Cooper’s Hawk 400,000-member Wine Club as October’s “Wine of the Month,” and also celebrates the brand’s 14th anniversary. This full-bodied wine, both intense and powerful, can be sampled across all 40 Cooper’s Hawk tasting rooms and restaurants during the month of October and ongoing, until supplies last. This latest collaboration marks another step forward in the Cooper’s Hawk Founder & CEO Tim McEnery’s stated purpose of enriching peoples’ lives by providing access to elevated food and wine experiences.
“Collaborating with LVE and John Legend is an unbelievable opportunity and creates enormous value for the Cooper’s Hawk brand”, says McEnery. “Working with LVE and John to create this wine was a special moment in my career; to learn that he is just as passionate about wine as he is music, was really moving. I look forward to sharing John’s passion and this amazing blend with Wine Club Members.”
The LVE and Cooper’s Hawk collaboration red blend has a beautiful deep almost opaque color with a slightly purple rim. The nose is loaded with aromas of cherry, blackberry, blueberry, strawberry, vanilla, and nutmeg. The finish is equally powerful, with flavors of anise, raisin, plum, and baking spices while balanced for drinking now, will age well for 3-5 years.
“Working with Cooper’s Hawk and LVE really brought my love of wine to new heights. This wine celebrates innovation, collaboration and an opportunity to share my passion with the Cooper’s Hawk wine club – a loyal group of wine enthusiasts who truly love and appreciate the art of winemaking,” says John Legend.
For the last 14 years, Cooper’s Hawk has been breaking new ground by actively collaborating with tastemakers from the wine and culinary industries, furthering its quest to expose Wine Club Members to new and unique wines and winemakers. The company produces a limited-production wine for Wine Club Members every single month, and has collaborated with luminaries including Tyler Florence, Richard Blais, Francis Ford Coppola, Fabio Viviani, Gail Simmons, and others.
Cooper’s Hawk Winey & Restaurants will soon open Cooper’s Hawk Esquire in Chicago’s former Esquire Theater in early November 2019, where the LVE and Cooper’s Hawk collaboration wine will be available in the tasting room. The restaurant will offer one-of-a-kind experiences, a premium menu, and a selection of rare and exclusive wines. Cooper’s Hawk Esquire will be the brand’s first urban location nation-wide.
